American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Update: Puerto Rico

Possible Need for Surgeon Volunteers in Puerto Rico

As the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria continues to unfold, our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected by this devastating natural disaster and its aftermath. Operation Giving Back (OGB) has learned that the Puerto Rico Department of Health anticipates a potential need for assistance from surgeons outside the territory in the days ahead. In an effort to be prepared should that need arise, OGB is compiling a list of American College of Surgeons members who would be willing to volunteer. If you are able to travel to Puerto Rico and are interested in serving, please provide the requested information in the linked form below. You will be contacted if we are informed that Puerto Rico is accepting surgeon volunteers.
